About

A petite antique Thai wooden betel nut box from the early 20th century, with painted décor and pierced motifs. We have more boxes available, see image 3 to view two other boxes that would work well as a part of a set (items LU863915598752 and LU863915598722). Contact us for more information. Born in Thailand during the early years of the 20th century, this small betel (areca) nut box features a near square silhouette, adorned with carved, painted and pierced motifs. Compartmented on the inside, this Thai betel nut box charms us with its red, black and golden fainted colors and simple appearance, making it a great decorative choice to adorn any shelf, table or buffet top.
